First thing I would do is replace the FUEL FILTER, then road test. There could be other things wrong, but this is a common maintenance item overlooked. Hope this help

I down shifted into 2nd gear while slowing down on a bumpy hill and my gear grinded hard. Now my 1988 Isuzu 4x4 pickup won't go into 2nd gear. All other gears are OK.

check shifter linkage --then either damaged gear,syncro,or shaft for the latter will need to open the unit --change fluid and look for fillings or metal

High oil pressure

Other than good filters will cause this problem. Get a Ford FL1A at Walmart or parts store and replace yours.
Crappy ones from oil changes regardless of brand are not smart. Even though they might be brand names, they are bought in balk in a big box and are lower quality to decrease price and increase profits at oil changes.
Also... consider changing the sender in the engine block. They go bad and give crazy readings.

Hi I know you said you have replaced the air sensor but this does sound like an air fault. try spraying the air sensor with carb cleaner leave to dry then replace, also I would normally say check all your air pipes as it sounds like it is getting to much air but again you have done this. ensure all the air pipes are not ripped or toen on the underside of them I often find these fault are through to much air.

The other thing is could be is the EGR valve, what engine size is the car?

Check fuel pressure wit a guage at schrader valve on fuel rail with key on and engine not running. The pressure needs to be 55 to 61 PSI. If it is less than 55 PSI, replace the fuel pump in gas tank and fuel filter. If it is more than 61 PSI, replace fuel pressure regulator.

1994 LT1 Engine "balks" under acceleration intermittently

Your fuel pump or your catalytic is plugged. have it tested with a infrared gun it will tell you if the cat is bad and if it is replace it test the fuel pump for fuel rail pressure it should read 50 psi then hold to 20 psi for 1 minute.. Also check to see if the intake plate is dirty and if it is do a top engine clean, buy GM's top engine cleaner and run it threw the engine, if you have carbon buildup the compression and cause the car to run bad and the knock sensor will not be able to adjust time. I know this sounds silly but these three things will cause your problem and so will a bad fuel filter.
